Tweezerman Stainless Steel Slant Tweezers
Advantages: precise, sharp, stay sharp and if not can get sharpened for free, get patterns and colours
I wrote a review a few months back for Boots own slanted tweezers and went off on how tweezers are all the same and not to bother with tweezerman tweezers as they were ridiculously priced when Boots own did what you wanted them to. However I recently caved and bought a pair as my Boots ones were not as sharp as they once were and weren't picking up all the tiny hairs I wanted them to and I can easily take back everything I said in that Boots own tweezers review.
I am obsessed with keeping my eyebrows nice and shaped and I get a lot of compliments on how good they look. Eyebrows can change the entire shape of your face so I think it's important to look after them and keep them looking neat, even if you get them done professionally and only remove the odd stray one yourself.
The pair of Tweezermans I bought were a mini pink slanted pair from boots for £12.50, the full size were £19.50 and the only reason I went for the smaller pair were because they were cheaper. The only colour options on offer were pink and purple as it was a small Boots I was in at the time but I know you can get a wide variety of patterns and colours on their website or places like ASOS.
The packaging of the tweezers is simple, a plastic mould around the tweezers attached to cardboard with the details on. The tweezers inside are kept in a small plastic tube with a soft plastic removable top. I tend to keep my tweezers with the pointed ends upright so the soft plastic of the lid cushions them a little bit. The actual tweezers are a little under 3 inches long and coats in a pink plastic that although isn't rubbery or lined is very easy to grip and do not slide whilst holding them. Tweezerman is written along the side in a black font and the ends are made of metal and slanted at a good angle to hold against your eyebrows.
You can feel with your fingers that the ends are very sharp but do not cut you. When using them to pluck my eyebrows I catch all the hairs first time and the slanted edge of the tweezers make it extremely easy to pull out even the shortest of hairs and even dig out ones that are just coming through, although sometimes this can be a bad idea as they will leave a small dot of blood from scratching the skin a bit.
I really would recommend these tweezers even if you do not really pluck your eyebrows as they could be helpful for many things such as tiny arts and crafts or I imagine they would be amazing for digging out painful splinters as they are so sharp and precise. Tweezerman say on their packaging they guarantee the tweezers stay sharp for life and if not you can send them in to be sharpened free of charge which I think is a great idea. Although they do cost a lot just for a pair of tweezers they do last a very long time as they stay so sharp and with other tweezers you often end up replacing them for £2-£3 each new pair so you will be saving money in the long run.
Summary: Get some, I'd be lost without mine! 10 stars
